divisions on capitol hill, two rival plans now appear to be in the works. for more, we go to nbc's tracie potts in washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are two different approaches here. one democrats who want to make sure whatever deal they come up with holds through the 2012 elections. republicans are looking at a step by step process where they would cut a trillion and raise the debt ceiling some now and come back to renegotiate part of this before the election. democrats and the president say no way they'll go for that. that's why we're at a stalemate. the issue now is timing. you mentioned meetings over the weekend. president obama we saw with top democrats at the white house trying to urge them to compromise more. republicans met with john boehner. he told conservatives they've got to be a little bit more giving in terms of compromise. so here we are at a stalemate and the world markets this morning are reacting. on the bbc one high level english official said that as he put it right wing nutters in congress are causing more of a problem to the world ec

is seeing progress. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with more. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the president says we're seeing progress. what's unclear is how quickly that progress might lead to a deal, if that could happen before this deadline two weeks from today. president obama likely to sit down again with democrats and republicans before the end of this week to try to hammer something out. both sides set to talk later this morning, and also on the house floor today a vote on the cut, cap, and balance bill cutting the budget, capping federal spending, and calling for a balanced budget amendment. democrats say it is too harsh on medicare and social security, but there's another plan out there by a republican that is even tougher. $9 trillion in cuts, $1 trillion in tax increases by republican tom coburn of oklahoma. tax increases against the will of his own party. his plan would also require veterans to pay more for their medical care. none of this yet wrapped up. lynn. >> tracie potts for us in washington. tracie, thank you. >>> well, now here's a look
down that tracy corridor, the area near 132. this appears to be south of the tracy municipal airport. you can see the area dry with brush, very dry there. it is still growing and temperatures upwards of 90 to 100 degrees, very hot and very dry right now. we'll continue to watch this fire and let you know what happens. we'll also get information from our weather person in a moment. >>> let's turn your attention to berkeley tonight where friends and loved ones of a missing cyclist are desperately looking for any signs of mike martin. he vanished in the hills over the weekend. he is a former professional cyclist but loved ones are concerned he may have embarked on an impossible journey. >> monty is near a road with clues. why that area? >> reporter: we're not far from where someone found mike martin's cell phone in the area. there's no sign of him. tonight, his girlfriend says she fears something may have gone terribly wrong. she is in shock. her boyfriend's cell phone is the only clue she has why he never showed up for their dinner date on saturday night. >> every time i arrive
to be in the works. for more, we go to nbc's tracie potts in washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the bottom line this morning, still no deal here in washington. ever so close to this deadline for default. republicans, democrats, the white house, all working overtime this weekend to try to come to some agreement. president obama had top democrats at the white house working on their backup plan. john boehner, the house speaker, meeting with conservative republicans last night telling them that they need to be ready to compromise and deal with some changes from what they originally wanted. there are two different versions here. democrats looking to, in fact, insisting that we deal with all of these cuts through 2013. republicans saying they want to do it step by step, which could mean more negotiations before the 2012 elections. the big concern this morning, will the markets be spooked by all of this just over a week from the deadline? we're already seeing lower asian markets. and in an interesting twist, the high-level english official says that it's, in his words, the rig
hill over the deficit and debt ceiling talks. for more on that we go live to nbc's tracie potts in washington. tracie, good morning to you. >> reporter: veronica, good morning. good morning, know. we hear this morning that there may be at least a short-term deal in the works where congress would be able to work this out so the united states does not default on its bills come august 2nd. here is that short-term deal. $1 trillion in spending cuts, which would allow the u.s. to borrow $1 trillion and prevent a default for at least seven months. another version of that. $2 trillion in cuts, $2 trillion in borrowing that would prevent default until the end of next year. john boehner's office says it hasn't seen anything on the table yesterday. president bush wants to raise taxes in part, but republicans are furious at him for suggesting this week that they've been taking too much time off as opposed to working on this very important issue. the tone here is, in fact, changing. one of the big concerns and senator harry reid brought this up yesterday, is if they don't come up with a dea
the bill. still, the president is saying he is seeing progress. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with more. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. republicans are calling this bill cut, cap and balance. essentially they want to cut the deficit, cap what the federal government is spending and then move toward a balanced budget amendment. an amendment to the constitution. democrats say those cuts hurt too heavily medicare and social security. it is expected to pass the house, not expected to pass the senate. will not get the president's signature. so that, democrats are saying is dead in the water there are a couple of republican plans on the table, including oklahoma's tom coburn, who is suggesting cutting $9 trillion from the deficit over the next decade, almost four times as much as democrats and republicans have been negotiating. he would also raise taxes, something that his party is against. mitch mcconnell has a different idea, he says let's let president obama deal with this debt ceiling himself and force democrats to go along. lynn? >> tracie potts in washin

. tracie potts joins us from washington with the arrest latest. >> reporter: this is the plan that boehner says will save the $1 trillion that both sides could agree on. it turns out the congressional bubbling office will only save $850 billion. that means he is sure he is back to the drawing board trying to find more savings. there are lots of questions on the house side about this plan as he now puts off a vote to try to get those numbers in line. he can only lose 22 republican votes and still get this plan through. ten republicans have already said they're not voting for it. now, on the senate side, harry reid's plan, still some yez questions there. it would save more than boehner's plan. not touching medicare or social security, but there are still even some democrats who aren't on board with this, and, of course, there are republicans in the senate who say it should go into cutting those entitlement programs. that vote also being put off. americans still very frustrated about this. the whole situation still unsettled with just six days to go, and those ratings agencies that you mentio
. this location is in the city of tracy. this acquisition is on the tracy called country club, shown here. roughly where my finger is is where the pipeline cuts across the country club. this is two timber construction easements totaling 1.1 acres and two permanent easements. the agreement reached here with the country club calls for them to handle turf restoration and sprinkler and cart path issues. the city's obligation is simply to return the great back to its existing condition. in the country, take it from there. the purchase price includes adequate compensation for them to do that, and that is in the amount of $83,000. again, approved by the puc commission. we do have a general plan conformity letter on this as well. ymitem 11 is the same project. the city of tracy, san joaquin county. across the street from the golf course. this involves the acquisition from the dole family of eroded easement and a temporary construction even that lies along the road of 1.39 acres. this is also a settlement slightly above appraised values, below the requested amount. really, reflective of the temporary const
the country's credit is tarnished. tracie potts joins us with much more on that. >> reporter: long-term being the keyword there. the president made a rare appearance at the daily white house briefing to announce that meeting tomorrow and also say he doesn't think a short-term deal to prevent defaulting on the bills will work. he thinks they need to come up with something permanent, cutting almost $2.5 million from the budget, including $400 billion in tax increases for the rich and he says they need to do it in the next two weeks so that the markets aren't rattled. house speaker john boehner says he will go to this meeting, but he is already calling it in his words fruitless, saying there is no way a republican controlled house will pass any sort of tax increase at all. republicans criticizing the president saying we've shown a plan. where is your plan? you'll likely hear much more about this later today when the president holds his first ever twitter town hall meeting from the white house. lynn. >> tracie potts, thank you. >>> and now here's a look at other stories meganews early today in am
